Tobacco Cessation Outreach Calls to Members Begin Soon
Quitting tobacco is tough, but it's easier with someone to help you. The Quit For Life® Program has helped thousands of people, including PacificSource members, take control of their lives and their health by quitting tobacco. Program representatives will place personal calls to PacificSource members who have indicated on their health assessment that they use tobacco. Representatives will inform these members about the program, and invite them to participate.
For more information about the Quit For Life Program and tobacco cessation resources, visit our Tobacco Cessation page.
The Quit For Life Program is brought to you by the American Cancer Society® and Alere Wellbeing.
